GSTAR or MALINCAM, SAMSUNG video cams???

HI all.
I''ve been toying around with old security cameras for astro video use now for some time with mixed results. I use the Meade 12 inch ACF SCT.

I'm thinking that it may be better to purchase a ready made unit such as the GSTAR series or Malincam that's designed for the purpose rather than buying a Samsung SCC-A2333 or something similar and having to modify it etc.

For those of you who have used the above cameras, I would prefer to buy a GSTAR and keep my money in Australia, but the Malincam has so much hype about it with outrageously low lux specifications that I am now not so sure.

I would be using it in Colour mode only and won't be trying to hunt down the faintest of galaxies, just the well known ones, some globs and definately some planetary viewing.

Any help on this would be appreciated. Your comments are welcome
